BATS Wireless (BATS), one of the world’s leading innovators of antenna aiming, tracking, and stabilization systems announced the deployment of its cutting-edge FAST 4G LTE tracking antenna. The FAST LTE’s revolutionary technology represents an evolutionary step into autonomous link alignment, acquisition, and optimization.
The FAST 4G-LTE is a solid-state tracking antenna that provides vessels with long-range communications using public LTE networks. The innovative solution provides a unique alternative in the deployment of offshore broadband communication, allowing the system to make use of widely deployed and maintained public LTE networks across the globe. With its ultra-fast aiming and tracking capability, maritime operators can realize connectivity even while on the move.
The FAST 4G-LTE features BATS’ innovative high-power, small package RF design that operates from 700-2650MHz and has proved capable of closing LTE links at distances exceeding 35 miles from shore during early deployments.
“The FAST 4G LTE solution is driving an exciting new wave of opportunities for operators worldwide that are looking for more flexibility and dependability in their broadband link,” said Phil Cramer, BATS E.V.P. Sales & Marketing.
“With the ability to deploy broadband communications on the backbone of carrier networks, operators can always ensure they are getting a high-speed solution that will work at any location across the globe, where an LTE network is present. The FAST 4G-LTE solution represents a shift in how operators will be able to plan and rollout their vessel connectivity.”
